Springtail at the Station
I was attracted to a small insect on the wall at the station this morning which puzzled me. It had very long antennae and a long body. After much thought I decided it must be a springtail, and have discovered that it is called Pogognathellus longicornis. I don't see many springtails on the patch so was very pleased to find this one! Nearby was a Green Shieldbug.
